Sambhar Vadai

Sambhar vadai - I'll make quite often, whenever i make medhu vadais for festivals,my hubby will definitely ask for his favourite sambhar vadai, but dunno somehow i missed to post it yet in my blog.As am running blogging marathon with cooking with restaurant menu as theme, i know my last post for this month's blogging marathon will be this sambhar vadai, which i choosed from the list given by Srivalli.

I went for an easy breezy pepper medhu vadais for making this sambhar vadai also at the same time i went for quick sambhar.Obviously if you have your medhu vada batter, am sure this sambhar vadai goes for a quick cooking process. While sambhar goes for an easy breezy preparation, this pepper medhu vadai doesnt need chopped onions,chopped  green chillies or any other usual spices, just a coarsely crushed peppercorns and cumin seeds is enough to spice up this medhu vadas.Check out the blogger running this 24th edition of blogging marathon here.


1cup Whole white urad dal
10nos Whole black peppercorns
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
Few Curry leaves
Salt
Oil for deepfrying

Soak the whole urad dal in water and keep aside for 2 hours.

Strain the excess of water and grind them as fine paste with salt, you can add just few drops of water.

Meanwhile crush coarsely the peppercorns and cumin seeds and keep aside.

Transfer the batter, add the coarsely grounded peppercorns and cumin seeds and curry leaves, mix well.

Heat the oil for deep frying, take a small ball from the vada batter.

Flatten them with your wet fingers in your palm, make a small hole in middle and drop gently to the hot oil one by one.

Fry them in batches until they turns golden brown.

Drain the excess of oil with paper towel.

Check for Milagai Killi Sambhar

Drop the fried medhu vadas in the sambhar and let them sit atleast for an hour.

Serve this sambhar vadais topped with chopped onions.
